Thirteen Songs That Inspire Me (I know. AGAIN? Damn Right)

I don’t know about ya’ll but I need all the inspiration I can get these days. With the economy, the state of the world, life’s frenetic pace, I need to have every single word in my arsenal.

I know you dial up folks are cursing me right now. I hope you can listen to a few of them.

1. Amanda Marshall “I Believe In You” (Thanks to Kaige for introducing me to this artist)

2. Busta Rhymes and Linkin Park with “We Made It”

3. Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”

4. Martina McBride’s “Anyway”

5. Meredith Brook’s “Crazy” (set to some very cute home videos)

6. Celine Dion’s “That’s The Way It Is”

7. Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush singing “Don’t Give Up”

8. Incognito’s “Don’t You Worry About A Thing” (I first heard Manhattan Transfer do this song. I love it)

9. Nickelback’s “Savin’ Me”

10. Sarah McLachlan’s “Ordinary Miracle”

11. 3 Doors Down “Pages”

12. Avril Lavigne “Keep Holding On” (with awesome pics from “Eragon”. I love that movie.)

13. “I Will Survive” by (of all people) CAKE!!!

  1. After reading Acheron, every time I hear Nickelback’s “Saving Me” all I can think of is Ash playing guitar and singing that song to Tory. *sighs* How romantic….

  2. Ohh you have some nice songs. Don’t you just love music?

  3. *sigh* I love music to set the mood. But I have to admit, I didn’t have time to watch the videos, Jen. 😦
